FSI Master Football Tactical Analyst
20th September, 2021
ENG / ESP
My name is Victor Mañas and I am a Professional Football Analyst with more than 15 years of experience in the field of professional football.
I have worked as a strength and conditioning coach and as an assistant coach for La Liga clubs such as Polideportivo Ejido, Lorca Deportiva, and Deportivo Alavés. Since 2007, I have been part of the Unai Emery coaching staff, where I combined my work as a physical trainer with my debut as an analyst.
Then, I worked together with Unai on Sevilla FC, PSG, Arsenal and now, Villarreal CF.
This FSI course titled “Specialist in Tactical Analysis” is aimed at soccer coaches who are motivated to learn and to enrich their experience in continuous learning and improvement.
It is also aimed at football technicians who want to get started in the world of analysis or for those who are already working as tactical analysts and want to know, first-hand, the methods and workflows used by highly qualified professionals.
All of the teachers in this program are professionals working in the best clubs around the world, as well as excellent people. They will share with you their value as humans as well as their theoretical knowledge and above all, their empirical knowledge: Science and Experience all in one -- stimulating!
In football today, the tactical analyst, in any of its forms, is in high demand. The “need” has been created and clubs devote significant resources to creating structures around analysis to add value to the everyday workflows of their technical teams.
With this course, you will acquire the necessary technical and personal skills to be able to work with one of these clubs. “You can achieve your dreams by learning with FSI!".
